Of Things That Matter Most

Have you ever searched your heart for answers? 

Has it turned you inside and out?

I've been at it for a week.

And, I've read this book before,

and the changes I made before were impressive.

Its just getting better.

I feel like I've poured my soul out.

To whom? 

No one in particular.

Simply, I've been talking to myself...

something that an Apostle of God told me to do.

"The fourth key relationship is with ourselves. It may seem odd to think of having a relationship with ourselves, but we do. Some people can’t get along with themselves. They criticize and belittle themselves all day long until they begin to hate themselves. May I suggest that you reduce the rush and take a little extra time to get to know yourself better. Walk in nature, watch a sunrise, enjoy God’s creations, ponder the truths of the restored gospel, and find out what they mean for you personally. Learn to see yourself as Heavenly Father sees you—as His precious daughter or son with divine potential."

This is the other book I've been reading this week.

Maybe I haven't just been talking to myself.

I feel that as I re-read these pages,

I can see myself struggling to become something more.

Something more than I am.

Progress is never easy,

but it is worth it, in the end.
